Undertakers in Waterloo

undertakers in WaterlooYou may need to search for undertakers in Waterloo if you need to make funeral arrangements after the passing of a family member. Undertakers are also referred to as funeral directors. They provide a wide range of services dedicated to the actual funeral of the deceased person. First, they will prepare the body for the funeral. This is referred to as embalming. This is a cosmetic and sanitary process which prepares the body for burial in a casket. The funeral director also arranges for transportation of mourners, flowers, newspaper announcement and assistance with paperwork. When a loved one passes away, it is difficult to arrange for all these services. This is where an experienced funeral director can help.

For those living in Waterloo, undertakers and other funeral services are provided by Barringtons. Our approach is to place you in charge of planning the funeral. We believe this is a personal and meaningful way of ensuring the best services are carried. Our team is there to support and assist you every step of the way. At Barringtons, we offer four types of funeral services: traditional, simple, bespoke and direct cremation. We will explain each type in detail and help you decide which one is most suitable. Apart from selecting the type of funeral, our team will also guide you in selecting a casket, preparing the obituary, arranging flowers and other tributes and assistance with registration and coroner’s procedures. We can also suggest different ways of personalising the funeral service such as creating a memory board, playing music, providing family pallbearers, and making a book of memories.

      Coronavirus Virus Update

      Thanks for visiting our website. We are open to support you during the current Coronavirus Crisis.

      We are continuing to offer our service with some limitations to our working to keep you safe and also our team members.

      At the moment we prefer to make arrangements remotely over the phone or using video conferencing. If you doesn't work for you, please let us know and we will make arrangements to support you. 

      Please make an appointment before visiting our offices. If you are in isolation, shielding  or clinically vulnerable we can still help by using email and the internet. We may visit you to sign paperwork or to collect items and we can also complete forms on your behalf or e-sign them using the internet. 

      Our Waterloo office is open 9am - 5pm and Formby is currently open 10am - 4pm. There are still lots of ways that we can discuss to make the service personal and involve people from a distance.

      Funerals are still taking place but there is a legal limit on attendance at the service of 30 people. Any reception or wake is subject to the current restrictions on hospitality.

      Thanks for your understanding. Please don't wait before making arrangements. It's important that we still hold funeral services promptly.

      Thanks very much,

      David and Claire Barrington.
